We have exclusive photos of the upcoming Tata Safari SUV which is scheduled to make its India debut later today.
The all-new Safari is one of the most awaited SUVs from the house of Tata Motors which is expected to be unveiled today. Ahead of its debut, we have exclusive photos of the soon-to-be-launched 2021 Tata Safari SUV that were spotted at a fuelling station. At least three Safari SUVs were spotted on the roads sporting the white exterior colour similar to the Harrier SUV. The other unit bears a new dark blue shade that we’ve seen in previous spy images. The Indian carmaker will be officially revealing the SUV later in the day. Tata Motors showcased the three-row version of the Harrier at the 2020 Auto Expo as the Gravitas Concept.

Based on our exclusive images, the three SUVs appear to be a top-spec variant featuring 18-inch machine-cut alloy wheels, chrome studded tri-arrow front grille, LED headlamps, signature-style LED taillights, roof rails, flared wheel arches, side claddings, dual-tone bumpers, skid plates. The image also shows ‘Safari’ lettering on the tail lid, similar to what we have seen on some of the previous spy shots. Visually, the new Safari SUV will be 70 mm longer than the Harrier with length, while the wheelbase and track remain untouched.
The company had recently rolled the first production model off the assembly line at its manufacturing facility in Pune. The home-grown automaker has been teasing the SUV on its social media accounts, and it recently revealed captain seats in the middle-row through a teaser. The bookings for the new 2021 Safari are expected to commence very soon.

It is good for 168 bhp of maximum power against 350 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options might include a 6-speed manual gearbox along with an optional 6-speed automatic torque converter.
